You might feel the way that I do about the kitchen, and you might want to make your kitchen as beautiful as you possibly can (like me). But if you are hesitating because of low finances, then this type of lighting is the one place to start in making your kitchen more beautiful. There are various types of lighting that you might be inclined to try for your food haven: natural lighting, accent lighting, task lighting and general lighting. Natural lighting, as its name implies, uses natural light. Thus, the only things you will have to consider are the size and style of your windows, in terms of how much natural light they can allow through. Accent lighting refers to providing light sources for those areas in it that are not provided for or covered by general lighting.
There are basically two styles of track lighting. One that is a straight bar that can either be installed flush with your ceiling or lowered a bit. The second is more of a funky artsy style that is often curvy. They can take LED light bulbs or more often Halogen light bulbs.
Pendant kitchen lighting fixtures are decorative fixtures. They typically suspend from the ceiling and offer general as well as task lighting. Most kitchen designers prefer placing them over counter areas or over islands where dining, conversation, baking as well as food preparation occurs. A good example of pendant lighting fixtures is the mini-pendant, which is usually used for small kitchen spaces and is approximately 12 inches or less. Another example is the island light or multi-light pendant, which works well bigger spaces that require more lighting.
Kitchens today are built much larger than they use to be. As a result you have a lot more space to play with. Accent Lighting is not only decorative but can provide function as well. We use ours in the event someone needs to visit the refrigerator or get a glass of water in the middle of the night but doesn‘t want to completely wake up in the process.
Small portable lamps can be placed on counters where there are no upper cabinets. You might also be able to find one small enough to go under the upper cabinets. These will most always have a clip on shade. Meaning, it‘s a shade that fastens to your light bulb and isn’t connected to the body of the lamp.
